Here’s how to get ready for pregnancy:
When you’re pregnant or know someone who is pregnant, keep in mind that there are many physical changes happening inside the body as well as outside. Here is a list of things you can do to make sure that your body will be in the best possible shape for childbirth, and at the same time have an enjoyable pregnancy. Here are some tips to prepare for childbirth:
- Find an OB/GYN or a midwife to monitor your pregnancy and assist in childbirth.
- Be mindful of your health.
- Eat well.
- Stay fit! Exercise will help prepare for labor by making it easier for the body to work through contractions. Here is information about prenatal exercises.
- Consider taking pre-natal vitamins such as folic acid.
- Pregnancy may involve some changes in lifestyle. For example, smoking is a no-no, as well as alcohol and drug consumption as all these can affect the health of mom and baby.
- Get informed about the possible symptoms of pregnancy and how to deal with them.
- Get as much information as possible about what might happen during labor so that you’re able to make informed decisions with your healthcare provider(s).
- Rest… rest… rest! As once baby is born this word may be out of your vocabulary for a while.
- Perform ultrasounds in order to meet your baby beforehand, bond with him/her and have a glimpse of how he/she looks like. At Here’s Baby Pregnancy Ultrasound Studio our sonographer will create your child’s first photo album for you: an ultrasound baby book!
